HERE'S THE STORY:
SAVE THE FROGS in Belize
Introduction: Belize is a wonderful little country that is located east of Guatemala and is nestled beneath the Yucatán Peninsula of Mexico. Like many countries in Central America, Belize is a hot spot of biodiversity and is home to 37 species of amphibians. Little is known about the amphibians of Belize and more studies are needed to understand the current status regarding their conservation. However, Belize is a developing country and many of these species are under threat of extinction from habitat destruction and the threat of the nefarious Chytrid Fungus, which has already driven many Central American species to extinction.
